Hello!

Sorry for being such a slacker blogger! Actually I've kinda been a slacker when it comes to all social media lately. :/
I'm still working on Like the Dawn. It's been a much slower process this time around because not only did both my #1 editor and my #2 editor lose family members recently, I had an abnormal scan last Tuesday (my first annual scan post cancer and it's abnormal--boo!), so I've been a little stressed out about that.
I had a biopsy done yesterday and I should hear more by Friday--why do they make us wait so long for results?
Anyway, so since Heather and Maya were both unable to start editing right away, I decided to do another read through of my own and I've been adding in some bits and pieces as I go so it's taking me a while to get through it. My goal is to finish my read through by Friday (shooting for earlier) and send it to both of them this weekend.
Bad news is: an April release is not likely....good news is: it's almost May and it WILL be released sometime next month so YAY!
This July I'll be starting Sea Swept...I usually need about a month to recoup after a release so I'll be spending June just THINKING about the new story...plus I'm usually constantly checking Amazon and Goodreads for reviews the first few weeks after I release a book so I can't really concentrate on anything else the first month after a release. Yes, I read reviews...all of them...even the bad ones...I have thick skin.Okay not really, but I don't get my feelings hurt over bad reviews.
And I have way more good reviews than bad so it's easy to keep things in perspective.

As sad as I am to be saying good bye to Lark, I'm super excited to start a new adventure...and a little nervous, but I think that's probably normal.
Oh! And just so you know Sea Swept will more than likely be a stand alone novel...unless Komal Kant manages to convince me otherwise. ;) As of right now though, I'm saying stand alone.
After Sea Swept I have two (yes TWO!) contemporary romances I'll have to decide between for my next project. I guess we'll just see which characters demand my attention first.
Well, that's all I have for now! I'm going to fix dinner (have to feed the Blondies after all) and then I'll be editing for the rest of the evening so all of you will soon have Like the Dawn in your hands!



XOXO

Paper Flowers

It all started as a game—a game I never lost.
Cami Andrews is a girl on a mission. She’s a girl with a plan.
A three-step plan, to be exact, and it hasn’t failed her yet.
Her best friend Oliver doesn’t approve of the games she plays.
He is a boy unwaveringly loyal. Loyal to a fault, but his patience is running thin.  
When Cami sees Peyton Holmes for the first time she knows that she wants him to be her next conquest, and when Cami sets her sights on something, she never fails. Not in life and certainly not in love. She always gets what she wants, even if she has to adjust her personality a little in the process. It might test her friendship with Oliver, but that’s a chance she’s willing to take.

Nightingale: Spellbinding YA book about witches

Today I received an email letting me know that NIGHTINGALE has been included in a recently published wiki: Spellbinding YA Books About Witches! 
If I'm honest, Nightingale is my favorite out of the books set in the Lark universe so I was very excited to see it getting some love finally!



Here's what they said about NIGHTINGALE:

 "At #3  is "Nightingale" by Erica Cope. Wren Fairchild has no memory of who she is or how she ended up in a Light Elf kingdom. She eventually meets Greyson St Clair, the Consul to Queen Mia of Ãlfheimr. He doesn't trust Wren, but in order to learn more about her true nature, he'll have to help her regain her memories. Together, the pair must travel to the one place that can reveal the truth about the past, unraveling shocking secrets along the way."

M.I.A as usual!

Hello everyone! I realize that I have been M.I.A. As most of you probably know I have been in grad school the last two years and it's been pretty time-consuming. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I graduate in December and after this semester (which has been particularly challenging), it should be smooth sailing until graduation day!

I am still writing. Not nearly as often as I once did because in addition to being a mom, a teacher, and a cheer coach, I am also a student. Whenever I can squeeze it in though I am writing! I finished a chapter tonight which prompted me to realize that I haven't updated my website in I don't even know how long.

I'd say I'll try to do better but let's be honest, I've said that before!

I have two solo WIP...THESE BROKEN DREAMS and SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FALLING. Both are very different from each other so that's kind of fun. Autumn and I also have a little something in the works but her life is just as hectic as …
